Help with how to choose outdoor furniture

Buying new outdoor furniture for your home can be a little daunting, there’s no question. You’re spending quite a bit of money, so you want to be sure the outdoor furniture design is exactly right for your place. Well, now you can be.

You can check our outdoor furniture fits in terms of size, style, and colour without having to set foot in one of our showrooms — unless, of course, you want to.

At Modern Style, we have introduced an augmented reality (AR) feature to our website. It works on iPhone, iPad and Android smart devices and no special apps are needed. You don’t have to download anything. Being able to visualise what you’re looking at in your own home helps with how to choose outdoor furniture and gives you the extra reassurance that you are making the right choice.

How does augmented reality (AR) work?

Basically, this clever feature lets you virtually place realistically rendered, true-to-scale 3D models of Modern Design furniture on your deck, patio in the garden or by the pool. All you need to do is stand in your outdoor space at home holding your smart device in front of you. The next steps really are simple.

  • Select the sofa, table out outdoor lounge suite from the website menu.
  • Scan your space at home and the outdoor furniture you’ve selected will appear on your screen. Using two fingers, you can move it where you want, or swivel it to make sure it’s positioned just right.
  • You can walk around the settings, get a sense of scale, colour and style.

Why AR is cool

  • You can view our outdoor furniture sets in your own space
  • You can view our furniture from different sides
  • Get a sense of scale, colour and style
  • Play around with different colours, styles, and patterns
  • See if the furniture fits on your deck without having to break out the measuring tape
  • Move the object around the garden
  • Get a good idea of what your patio or veranda will look like with the new furniture in place.

Virtual outdoor furniture at your place with the click of a button. 

Our furniture appears on your screen as if the sets are really there. You can walk around and see them at all angles, so you can fully appreciate our designs and different layout possibilities.

We have selected core collections, and are developing more to help you choose furniture for your place. Check them out!

Choosing outdoor furniture made simple

One of the main challenges of buying furniture online is trying to visualise what the chairs, tables, sofas or loungers look like in real life. And unlike returning a jacket that doesn’t fit, which is a relatively straightforward process, sending back a big item like an outdoor dining room table can be more difficult. 

Now you can rotate the chairs, tables, and outdoor suites, zoom in or out, and make sure what you’re buying suits you and your place perfectly! This app really does help with how to choose outdoor furniture.
